Post The Earth-Romulan War (2156-2160)

In light of the upcoming film it is interesting to point out that if "Star Trek: Enterprise" had continued and completed seven seasons it would have covered the Earth-Romulan war. It was going to be covered in the film but JJ Abrams specifically wanted to do a Kirk and crew story. Do you think the War should be made into a film?

I don't want Wars, I want Trek
I hope there will never be a war movie using "Star Trek" in the title!

Apart from the Dominion War, I can't think of any other major conflicts covered in a series. The Earth-Romulan war was the start of a 'new era' - it included the setting up of the Federation. Also it was a lot different from the Dominion War - tech wasn't as good, neither side 'saw' what the other side looked like, they contacted each other via subspace radio. I just hope that in the new film they recount a little about this war and keep the Romulans and Humans/Starfleet people from seeing each other face to face - it would 'break' the canon.

I think the Romulan War should be covered on screen at some point. I think it would do better as a TV movie though.

How about an animated series? Could continue the NX-01 story.

Should be covered as part of a larger "Star Trek Anthology" series.

Sure i'd love it. I don't think the general public would so it would probably perform like Nemesis did...not so well.

I would very much like to see the Earth-Romulan war covered on screen in some way. Granted, Star Trek is about exploration, but it's the war that created the Federation that came to be in this universe. I don't see why not; although I agree with CaptainJamesTKirk that the general public wouldn't respond to it.

I'm sure it'll get covered if not in this movie, another movie... If this one is a success theres 2 other movies to think about. :P
